This is the first time I am designing a product for an automotive application; could I get some help in the following general area?
According to AECQ100, there are two temperature grades for automotive: Grade 0 (-40 to 150 degC) and Grade 1 (-40 to 125 degC). How do I know when to target the design for one or the other temperature grade? Is the grade dependent on the target application or some other factors (operating margins, etc).
The target application is a product to be used in recreational vehicles (RVs, boats, etc)
